Early recorded Flannerys in Ireland (8th - 18th Centuries)
Reginald O'Flanura, Bishop of Emly, Counties Limerick and Tipperary 1192 - 1197
The eminent seventeenth century historian, Sir James Ware, recorded Reginald O'Flanura
as Bishop of Emly. This has been substantiated by Fasti Ecclesiae Hibernicae (based
on Diocesan Registries, Chapter Books of Cathedrals, etc.) which records that Reginald
was Bishop in 1192 when his cathedral was burned down. He died in 1197.
